Free Parkinson’s Disease Webinar 2021 – Session 1
11th April is celebrated, the world over, as world Parkinson’s day. This is after the birth date of Dr. James Parkinson who 1st described the features of Parkinson’s disease.
200 years later we still depend on the symptoms that had been described by Dr. Parkinson to make a diagnosis of this disease.
Parkinson’s Care Trust and Jaslok Hospital conduct a series of patient awareness programs and initiatives every year starting from March onwards.
This year we have been struck by COVID and hence we could not physically conduct patient education and awareness program.
We, therefore, decided to conduct a series of Webinars, so as to unable the patients and their caregivers to be updated about coping and living with Parkinson’s disease.
13th March First Free Webinar For Parkinson’s People
13th March 2021- Free Online Parkinson’s Webinar
The first webinar was focused on improving the quality of life of Parkinson’s disease patients. Mrs. Bharati Karkera, who has been working with Parkinson’s disease patients for the last 20 years, gave first-hand insight into what she thought was important for improving the quality of life of Parkinson’s disease patients.
This had come from the experience of 100 and 100s of patients that she had interacted with during these many years.
Several small tips were provided which would go a long way to enhance the day-to-day function of Parkinson’s disease patients.
